Question: Do our taste buds require smell?


It tasted like sweet sugar but then when i unblocked my nose it tasted like blueberry


Jelly Beans
Your hands
Your nose
Your eyes

  1. Blindfold cover your eyes
  2. Block nose
  3. Put jelly bean in mouth and chew (don’t swallow)
  4. Record the flavor you taste
  5. Unblock your nose
  6. Taste again
  7. Then record


When i blocked my nose all i could taste was sugar which was disgusting. After i unblocked my nose i could taste the actual flavor which was blueberry


My hypothesis was right because after I blocked my nose all I could taste was sugar and once I unblocked my nose it tasted like a blueberry, feijoa but still disgusting

Holiday explanation

Thursday 16 October 2014

Holidays are important because we need to relax and have time to ourselves. It is a time to spend some quality time with family.

How can we spend our holidays?
Spending time with our family, Do something fun , do some chores around the house.

When we’re on holiday we can have a lot of time to think about our new goals for the next term and also spend a lot of time with close friends and family

On a beautiful hot sunny day my family and I went to the Glendowie Park to let out some energy. We had to walk down this hill and it took us about 15 minutes to get there. Once we arrived at the park we decided to climb up this spider web and lay down in the baskets and play a little game of rugby. By the time we all finished playing rugby we all walked back home it was tiring.

The most thing I enjoyed about the holidays was spending a lot of time with my sister and little niece that lives up north. We enjoyed every moment and precious time we spent together.

Matariki Poem

Look to the heavens  during matariki

7 stars shining bright,

they are like 7 bright flames

decorating the dark winter night sky

they’re gathering people together

happiness, laughter and celebrating

impressed by the beauty

that lights up the cool crisp june night

Matariki is Here
